Addiction is the condition of being addicted to a habit or behaviour. It typically impacts the individual's work, social, family and/or health obligations and has developed over considerable time despite negative and harmful consequences.
Recovery is typically described by individuals as a process of:
"We recognise the great need for families & their loved ones to access affordable & evidence-based rehabilitation centers & programs. ASV rehab at-home treatment options provide genuine recovery opportunities to any person impacted by addiction."
Hope - people can recover from even the most severe addictions if they are given the right support and opportunity.
Accessible treatment – access to appropriate supports and treatment for alcohol and drug misuse, dependence or addiction should be affordable and within the reach of people who seek it when they need it.
Individuality – people respond best to support when their addiction treatment and recovery planis achievable, flexible and tailored specifically for them.
Families – families of people experiencing addictions need support and understanding. People are more likely to recover from addiction when their family is well-informed, supportive and supportable.
Community – connection and a sense of belonging are essential to a life worth living.
"It is with much gratitude that I try to express in words the incredible difference that the ASV Rehab at Home program has made to my life, the lives of my loved ones and the world around me. To say that before beginning the program my life was a disaster would be an understatement. The only thing that mattered, more important than the business I built up over 20 years, my wife of nearly 20 years and my three kids, was getting on the coke and gambling. The cost was devastating, not just financially. At risk was everything that I had ever cared about, the things that were the most important to me in my life. It was time for a change. The ASV program was exactly what I needed. I could apply myself fully to the program and still manage to oversee my business and family commitments. While searching online for rehabilitation centers near me was a mind-boggling challenge I was fortunate to find my way to ASV. From the initial conversation, I felt confident I had found a good fit for my needs. Thanks so much ASV, you have made a difference in the lives of many!" - Anon 2021.
